487: You're Not To Blame for Tech Addiction with Prof Gaia Bernstein

Professor Gaia Bernstein is an expert in privacy and policy law, and is co-director of Gibbons Institute of Law Science and Technology.

Her latest book "Unwired: Gaining Control over Addictive Technologies" explores device addiction and what it’s doing to us. Rather than blaming users, the book really shatters the illusion that we autonomously choose how to spend our time online. It shifts the moral responsibility and accountability for solutions to corporations.

Drawing lessons from the tobacco and food industries, the book demonstrates why government regulation is necessary to curb technology addiction.
